Get ready for an exciting event where you’ll hear firsthand accounts from individuals who not only experienced incredible journeys but also put pen to paper to share their tales!

What a perfect chance to delve deeper into their exciting journeys, and perhaps, learn a thing or two about their writing processes. So, be sure to secure your spot and experience a world of adventures through the eyes of these remarkable authors.

Listen to Julia Cooke, author of Come Fly the World, a gripping narrative about the golden age of air travel.

Wendy Knecht, board member of the Pan Am Museum Foundation and author of ‘Love, Life and a Hijacking‘, is set to regale us with her exhilarating adventures! 

You’ll be captivated by Betty Riegel’s memoir, ‘Up in the Air,’ about her exhilarating life as a flight attendant in the jet age.

And you won’t want to miss Ilona Duncan’s book, “Watch Me Take Off” where she recounts her husband, Ian Duncan’s illustrious five decades career in aviation. From humble beginnings to realizing his dream to become a pilot; Ian Duncan’s story is one of humility, integrity and hard work.
